How to get Fish in Lost Ark

You get Fish in Lost Ark by using the Fishing Trade Skill at fishing locations around the world.

You can only fish at dedicated fishing spots, not just anywhere where there’s water present.

The first fishing spot that you’ll reach in the game is next to the Lakebar Village in Lakebar, the same place where you unlock Trade Skills.

To find fishing spots, open up the World Map and look at the Trade Skills info bar at the top-right corner of the window. If there’s a fishing hook icon in the info bar, there are fishing spots on the selected map.

The exact location of the fishing spots on the selected map is also marked with a fishing hook icon, as shown in the image below.

You reel in by using the Float Fishing skill again.

You get various fish and pearls from fishing, including the basic version of the resource that’s just called ‘Fish’.

Before you can start fishing in the game, you need to have learned Fishing, which you automatically learn when you learn Trade Skills.
